Plump, science-filled brains and zombies at the Ottawa Comiccon

OTTAWA, May 6, 2015 – Despite what you may have heard elsewhere, a plump, sciencefilled brain may be more helpful to surviving a zombie pandemic than a high cardiovascular capacity.

Still need convincing? Visit the Canada Science and Technology Museum’s (CSTM) booth at the Ottawa Comiccon, which takes place at the EY Centre from May 8 to 10. Until then, you still have time to register in the Museum’s contest to win a 3D print of your own zombified bust.

With the participation of its partner Proto3000, the CSTM’s booth will offer interactive scientific demonstrations as well as 3D scanning and printing. The booth will also showcase artifacts from the collection, a selection of vintage advertising materials, and more.

While the CSTM is closed for a comprehensive renewal until 2017, Museum artifacts, educational programs, activities and demonstrations are being showcased at different venues on an ongoing basis, to continue to spark curiosity for science, technology, engineering and mathematics and to share Canada's rich innovation heritage.
